The Lakeland College women's soccer team fell 6-1 to Concordia University Chicago in Northern Athletics Conference action Saturday afternoon.
The Cougars jumped on a lethargic Muskie team as they struck first in the second minute of action. Concordia Chicago would score again at the 16:29 and 20:23 marks to take a 3-0 lead.
The Muskies (3-8, 2-3 NAC) found a rhythm in the last 10 minutes of the first half as senior midfielder Kristi Borts (Milwaukee) put Lakeland on the board just a minute before halftime. Borts struck the ball just outside the 18 yard box to lift the Muskies.
Lakeland came alive in the beginning of the second half, but couldn't contain Concordia Chicago's offense. The Cougars scored three times in the second half for a convincing 6-1 NAC victory.
"Concordia Chicago had two front runners who were strong with speed," said head coach Tony Pierce. "They took advantage of us and played well. Whenever we tried to gain momentum, they counter attacked us and took the wind out of our sails. We played much better in the second half, but their counter attacks really hurt us."
Alyssa Soulis netted four goals and added an assist to lead Concordia Chicago.
Freshman goalkeeper Katelyn Streeter (Oakfield) recorded 10 saves.
The Muskies return to NAC action on Oct. 4 as they travel to Marian University. Game time is set for 4 p.m. in Fond du Lac, Wis.
